Nicecyle Fairings?

Have any of the Honda owners every purchased any fairing from them? If so, how would you rate your overall experience with them? Feel free to pm me if you care?

Nicecycle
http://www.nicecycle.com/2008_to_2009_Fairings_s/32.htm

How long was the shipping?

How was finish of the paint?

How hard was it to mount your fairings?

How did they fit afterward?

Do you feel it was worth it? Would you go with them again if you had to choice?

i think i would just search the internet for the fairings because, mine didnt all match up perfectly, they were all right, paint kind of flakes at corners, i think it maybe took 2 weeks to come in, it has to go through customs so thats what takes so long

Dude dont buy them from Nice cycle! They are the middleman for a hong kong plastic company...They told me abs..Ughhh NO..told me 15 to 21 days...NO...they said made in USA..NO! I got my non abs plastics in 6 weeks and they were shipped from hong kong...to my door..I was like wtf...paint is peeling off already but that may be my fault..bike looks good with modifications...but do what you want!

There is a bunch of people on 1000RR.net that did a review on 2 or 3 of the ching chong chay plastic companys i'd start by looking there. I would have got a repsol one already but my bike went poof first.

P.S. I paid almost 900 bucks cause i though heat shields, abs, USA made, 15 to 21 days...and I got none of that...I should have bought ebay and got the 500 dollar ones...Nicecycle got 300 extra from me...MiddleFknManners!

Someone stole your bike, that F***ING SUCKS!!!! You must have been furious. I haven't been on here much, I didn't know. Pm me if you want to share more details about that. I've been checking on 1000RR.net for reviews as well. Thanks for you feedback. Once again, sorry about the bike..

Ask Thomass. He has them and has the hook up. Saw them last night. They look good. Forget the 2nd hand info, just ask him.

Or just order from ebay. The fairings are 300.00 and the shipping is 300.00 so you will save around 200 or more if you go that route.

I knew the fairings were Chinese. 6 weeks is a bit long especially when you expecting them any day after the first 3 weeks. How obviously, you don't like the plastic.
Do you feel the plastic is super cheap, and F*** up a year or 2 down the road? What kind of modifications did you have to make? Are you overall pleased with the way your bike looks now?

I was under the impression that they were made in the US yes 6 weeks and I did call after 3 weeks. On the 6th week I was like screw it Im going to put my old plastics on so I did. When I finished A big box came to my door...I was so that I had just put my old on..So I said I will put the new ones on..The holes were smallet had to do some drilling to open the holes...Not everything aligned up with OEM. I am scared to take it to have work done on it cause I put it together and I wanna make sure it secure..I have only had them on maybe 2 months no fading cause I havent left it in the sun...The bike looks good but a bit of paint is starting to chip on the upper fairing. I LIKE HOW THE BIKE LOOKS dont know how long they will last but all I am saying is IF YOU ARE GONNA BUY THESE JUST BUY THEM OFF EBAY...I GAVE THIS GUY 300 BUCKS MORE FOR WHAT I COULD HAVE BOUGHT THEM FOR.
